The Second 10 Commandments
Here are ten health commandments that have survived the test of time.
1. Exercise Thy Body
There is no need to climb mountains as
Moses did, but if don't use it, you'll lose it.
A famous physician once wrote, "If exercise came in a bottle, it would be the most widely prescribed medicine of all.
2. Exercise Thy Mind
A sound mind in a sound body...
Again, if you don't use it, you'll lose it. Read. Write. Go back to school. Exchange ideas. Be creative. Be reflective. Learn something new every day. Share what you learn with others.
3. Exercise Thy Spirit
Read inspirational and/or scriptural
works. Don't be afraid to be open and loving. Give - and allow others to give
Be sure there's balance in your life: 1) time alone, 2) time with one other person, and 3) time with two or more other people (group activities).
4. Exercise Thy Willpower
Examine your habits - the ones you want to develop, and the ones you want to change. Then, set goals and make those changes.
5. Have a Happy Heart
Laugh. Live. Create. Share surprises. Help others find joy and purpose in their lives.
Schedule time for pure play, and find ways throughout your day to have fun.
7. Eat, Drink and Be Merry - Sensibly
Don't eat or drink or do anything else to excess. Don't smoke cigarettes or use harmful drugs. Don't take stupid chances.
8. Give Up Guilt, Regret, and Depression
Let go of the past, and move on! Decide what's wrong (not who's wrong), and take action.
9. Fear Not the Future
The best thing about the future is that
it comes only one day at a time.
The future's not totally in your control, but if you take care of today, most of the future will take care of itself.
10. Live Now
Learn from the past, plan for the future,
and live in the present.
Love others (and yourself) appropriately - now. Look for leaders (living, dead, or imagined) who are worthy of admiration and imitate their good qualities.
Pursue and persevere healthy relationships; you become like those you are with.
